"1974 California Yearbook (Found Poem)" by Melanie Brown
cause of despair: wrecking my bug
best times: when lee Maxwell told me what a taint was
"and the new day will dawn, for those who stand long,
and the forest will echo with laughter."
likes: Nikon, quervo, my van, and new experiences
cause of despair: the burritos in the snack bar
"cowabunga, all you grenies hot wax your sticks and
we'll hit it off the tubes."
worst times: "when a student teacher
practiced levitation in class."
Remembers: hickey sticks and chirps
pablo and shostovick, flying fingers,
good times with close friends
worst times: getting caught for sideburns
I remember: deep purple and the who concerts
wisest decision: not to be a smart aleck
hopes fulfilled: being good at wrestling and getting
attitude change: I'm a better person since I attended
VPHS: now I do everything with evil intent
best times: grateful dead concerts and skiing
foolish decisions: being overly mean to Jeff
cause of despair: finding out as time
goes by who are friends
